Measles notifications, by age group, region and sex- 2011 to 2018
These documents give cases of suspected measles reported by registered medical practitioners to local councils or local health protection teams.
In 2019, there are measles outbreaks in the US and Europe; Ebola outbreak in DRC and Uganda and several other infectious disease outbreaks in Nigeria, Vietnam and South Africa.

The Summit ended with the “G20 Osaka Leaders’ Declaration”, which identifies health as a prerequisite for sustainable and inclusive economic growth, and the leaders committed to various efforts to improve epidemic preparedness. These efforts are commendable, but the G20, compris...

Abstract Macroautophagy/autophagy is an essential cellular response in the fight against intracellular pathogens. Although some viruses can escape from or utilize autophagy to ensure their own replication, the responses of autophagy pathways to viral invasion remain poorly documented. Here, we show that peste des petits ruminants virus (PPRV) infection induces successive autophagic signalling in host cells via distinct and uncoupled molecular pathways. Immediately upon invasion, PPRV induced a first transient wave of autophagy via a mechanism involving the cellular pathogen receptor NECTIN4 and an AKT-MTOR-depende...
Abstract Household surveys remain an essential method for estimating vaccine coverage in developing countries. However, the resulting estimates have inevitable and currently unmeasurable information biases from inaccuracies in recall, low retention of home-based health records (HBR, i.e. vaccination cards), and inaccurate recording of vaccination onto HBRs. We developed an innovative method to overcome these biases, enhance the validity of survey results and estimate true vaccine coverage using nested serological immune marker assessments. We enrolled children 12-23 months of age in vaccine coverage surveys in Kar...
Conclusion: Current study showed that there was significant decline in the incident number of measles cases based on worldwide, regional, and income group estimates, but insufficient to achieve the measles elimination target by 2020.
Contributors : Jean-Francois Fonteneau ; Tiphaine DelaunaySeries Type : Genome variation profiling by SNP arrayOrganism : Homo sapiensWe performed a cytoscanHD array to analyze copy number variations in the genome of 12 human pleural mesothelioma cell lines established from patient pleural effusion.We were particularly interested in the analysis of the p21.3 region of chromosome 9 which contains CDKN2A tumor suppressor genes and the gene encoding type I interferons that are often deleted and confer sensitivity to oncolytic Measles virus
